All of our frames are hand made using Kiln dried solid maple hardwoods. We use hand tied coil and web construction and our springs are the finest quality japanned steel. Hand tied with the strongest 6 and 8 ply twine, using extra ties across the front for exceptional security . All of WD’s upholstered furniture is crafted to be therapeutic in a relaxing posture, perfecting the balance between softness and support .
Correct posture, when a person sinks into a well made upholstered seat whether a sofa or chair, involves a perfected relationship between the pitch of the back and the recline of the platform. Various elements are of vital importance in attaining this ideal comfort, the height of the platform, the gauge, size and studied placement of each coil spring, the thickness, type and density of the filling materials. These all contribute to the ultimate quality of comfort and the relaxing posture of WD seating. It is precisely because of the perfection we seek with the inner and hidden structures that form the essential foundation of particular excellence in our product.
The mission of Western Designers furnishings is to produce the finest quality bespoke upholstery, and provide our clients with the best personal customer service.
